While every accident is different, all accidents have something in common
Here at Accident Data Center, we read every day about accidents nationwide. We learn about where and how they happen, about the factors that contribute to them, and about the people who are involved. Despite their differences, all serious accidents have one thing in common - they tear people's lives apart in an instant.
Highway accidents, motor vehicle accident and collisions on roads and streets in Rhode Island and Providence Plantations have a way of coming on suddenly and ruining the day. Every highway accident or road crash in RI is different, but most follow certain patterns.
East Providence is a major urban area in Rhode Island with a high population density. In many cities where many people live in a small region there is always a significantly higher opportunity for car accidents when many motorists are traveling in close quarters at varying speeds on the open highways.
This increase in bicycling accidents has been ongoing for several years and shows no signs of diminishing without serious steps being taken to protect bikers on the city’s crowded streets.
Thanks to their efforts, bicyclists can use the BikeMaps app to report collisions and near misses, road hazards and bicycle thefts to the rest of the bicycling community. While there are an increased number of people who ride religiously, many often don’t feel safe in some riding situations.
Bus drivers, taxi drivers, Uber drivers, truck drivers, and other commercial operators have a higher duty of care in South Carolina because they are common carriers. Most motorists must use reasonable care when on the road, which essentially means that they must do their best to avoid car crashes. But common carriers have a duty of “best choice care,” which basically means that the safety of cargo and passengers overrides any other concerns they may have.
While bicyclists have the same rights as drivers in the state of Texas, they also have the same responsibilities. Whether you are enjoying a leisurely ride or your are commuting to and from work in rush hour, knowing the rules is necessary to stay safe on the road.
